My newest book! Child Medication Fact Book for Psychiatric Practice, Second Edition 2023

The Reviews Are In!

“Practical, thorough, and easy to use.
A must for all prescribers!” 

—Fred R. Volkmar, MD

“From one of the most trusted names in psychopharmacology comes this user-friendly, practical, and extremely useful guide to the treatment of child and adolescent mental illness. Highly recommended for both trainees and experienced practitioners alike. I myself will be referring back to this book for years to come.”

“This is a very helpful and user-friendly guidebook. The information fits on one page with bullets rather than unnecessary verbiage. FDA indications are noted as well as off-label uses; evidence/ research is cited (including negative studies). Dose guidelines and side effects are easy to spot. Medications included go beyond what the usual psychopharmacology book includes.
Altogether, this book packs a real punch!”
